Psi Chi congratulates the following chapters for winning this year's competition for the Regional Chapter Awards. Listed alphabetically, the 2006-07 winning chapters are as follows:
Central Michigan University
Charleston Southern University (SC)
University of Massachusetts
Regional Chapter Awards are presented annually to chapters in each of Psi Chi's six regions. Within each region, there may be chapter winners in each of the two categories of large schools (over 5,000 students) and of small schools (under 5,000 students). Psi Chi chapters that best achieve Psi Chi's purpose "to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology" will be named as winners.
Each winning chapter is presented a check for $500 and a plaque to display in its department. The awards are intended to perpetuate the chapters, to identify chapters as role models for others, and to promote the purpose of Psi Chi. The criteria for selecting winners are evidence of effective chapter activities for the past three years, strict adherence to the application procedures, and creative and effective presentation of application materials.
